The Next-Generation 2012 iMac Might Feature Anti-Refelctive Glass

Apple iMac Glass Reflective

In a summary report for touch panels and displays, Digitimes claims that G-Tech Optoelectronics is ramping up production for cover glass used in the new iPad. According to sources, G-Tech is likely to supply approximately 25-30% of Apple’s cover glass orders for the iPad this year.

Additionally, the report also suggests that G-Tech will supply AR (anti-reflective) glass cover’s for Apple’s all-in-one desktop iMac computer.

G-Tech is ramping up its production capacity of cover glass from 1.8 million units a month currently to three million units in 2012 as the company is likely to take up 25-30% of total cover glass orders for Apple’s iPads in the year, according to an industry estimate.

G-Tech is also expected to supply AR (anti-reflective) glass solutions for Apple’s all-in-one (AIO) PCs with the new products to also serve as a growth driver for G-Tech, indicated industry sources.

Sine the initial release of the current aluminum unibody iMac back in 2009, more than a few users have complained about the extreme reflectivity of the screen when the computer is in a bight environment. Hopefully, if Digitimes’ report is accurate, the anti-reflective glass panels supplied by G-Tech (and possibly additional manufacturers) will make reflective issues with the iMac’s display a thing of the past.

If Apple does incorporate some form of anti-reflective glass into the next-generation iMac, then it’s definitely possible that Apple’s laptop lineup and Thunderbolt Display could adopt a similar (non-matte styled) anti-reflective glass solution.

Stay tuned for more coverage on Apple and their products!
